10 CONVERSATION STARTING PIECES FROM OUT THERE INTERIORS
You know this blog is all about pushing boundaries and taking risks with your interiors and being bold and all those things I keep chewing your ear off about! So imagine my absolute joy when I got a 'hello' email from the online homewares store Out There Interiors. I mean, the name just says it all right?! there was no way I wasn't going to do a little round up of my favourite pieces and intro you guys to this fab new place to spend your hard earned pennies. I've put together a list of my top ten pieces they sell that will help you create that 'out there' interior that you know will make mummy Sarah so proud! Just check out some of this...
This is what I imagine I will have in my grown up sexy, glamorous lady home one day. It's not actually wood but a wood effect on glass which is pretty damn cool if I do say so myself, and the angular brass frame is beautifully retro chic.
This is a really grown up piece that will be a real conversation starter as you gather your also über cool, glamorous and sexy mates round for a cocktail.
What kind of dream world do I live in?! (currently in geek glasses and a lumberjack shirt, sigh).
I've ALWAYS wanted one of these. They are just so typically retro and any fan of brass (ahem, me) needs to have one in their life.
Since I was got this clock I've been wonderfully transported back to my childhood. Something about a ticking clock in the hallway can do that to a girl.
I love that it's slightly distressed to give it an almost antique look. This piece really compliments dark walls nicely, as seen here in my living room.
I searched high and low before I found my retro magazine rack, and had I have known that Out There Interiors had this one then my search would have been a hell of a lot shorter! Random abstract metal tubes makeup the shape of this statement piece, and it's at a great price too.
It's perfect for the Sunday lounge with a copy of World Of Interiors and a matcha latte.... just me?
This lamp says to me 'f*cking cool hotel' and let's face it, who doesn't want their pad to scream 'f*cking cool hotel' to anyone that enters?
I love the neon pink flash of colour and the simple design of this lamp. Everything about it is perfect. The flex cable. The bulb. The shape. The colour. The fact that it makes your place look like a cool hotel.
Do I need to go on?
Ok, I know this is not really my style at all. But there is something about this completely bonkers bed that I absolutely adore. Imagine having this in your bedroom... I wouldn't want to leave! It just screams Marie Antoinette meets Biggie Smalls in all of the right ways.
I'd pair it with a bunch of super modern stuff. The key to making this look good will be all around creating a juxtaposition. Perhaps the cool hotel style plexiglass lamp for instance. Hard, geometric lines meets ornate detailing. YOU TOTALLY SEE IT NOW DON'T YOU!
Did I ever tell you I'm obsessed with Flamingos? They are the best bird. Full stop. The colour of them is just too-flippin-fabulous to contend with. This resin flamingo statue needs a place in your entryway, like, NOW.
Having this in your pad will scream out 'I'm eccentric and proud of it'. It's so out there and cool that your guests won't even know what hit them. Or pecked them.
You're just not down with the kids if you're not posting inspirational memes or quotes on your insta on the regs. Life in 2015 is all about doing it big, go hard or go home, reach for the moon and hit the stars kinda thing.
These awesome lightboxes include interchangeable perspex sheets so you can switch it up depending on whether you're feeling more 'love' or 'soul food'. Brill.
There is nothing I love more than geometrics. Combined with a metallic finish and in a piece as versatile as a table lamp? Woooiiii. You got me.
The cascading cubes in bronze are a sophisticated way to incorporate geometrics into your place, and this could work equally as well in a room with a more refined palette, or something a bit more colourful and eclectic.
Buy a matching pair to flank a large scale piece of monochrome abstract artwork for real impact.
Ah man, I'm in love with this chair. Copper rods support two grey cushions for a super modern-eclectic look that would work in almost any style of home. To me, these are in the same vein as a Jonathan Adler, a Kelly Wearstler or even some of Abigail Ahern's recent pieces.
With such a design led look, this is really the piece to up your interiors game. Trust me.
I actually would suggest you don't use these at coat hooks but actually just get a few different styles (check out the other types they have on offer) and create a really interesting and conversation-starting wall display.
Keep them all in white for a little bit of sophistication. Add the 'up middle finger' one to show that one doesn't take oneself too seriously.
I'd love to know what your favourite piece from my selection is! Have you ever checked out Out There Interiors? Well worth a try in my opinion...
*The starburst clock was sent for product review from Out There Interiors in return for my product review. I only ever work with brands that I fully endorse and would, or already shop with myself. Thank you to Out There Interiors for my sexy clock!*
